Kevin Hart surprises 18 students with $600,000 worth of college scholarships

American Comedian and actor, Kevin Hart is giving back in a major way! Last night, the actor and comedian surprised 18 HBCU (Historically black colleges and universities) college students with new scholarships.

According to a press release, the surprise happened during a United Negro College Fund dinner.

Kevin joined forces with UNCF and KIPP, Knowledge Is Power Program to present his $600,000 Help From The Hart Charity Scholarship, which went to deserving students based on their personal and academic accomplishments.

The recipients included KIPP students from 11 historically black colleges and universities, including Morehouse College, Spelman College, Fisk University, Dillard University and Xavier University.

“I am living proof that if you put your mind to something you can not only achieve it, but you can go above and beyond the expectations of what you thought that you could do.

After you open one door, the crazy thing is you find out that there are seven more doors that you could open,” Hart said.

“Education is that first door – breeze through this!

“This is the opportunity of a lifetime – breeze through it! When you get to that next door…breeze through that. Success is what you want it to be,” he added.

“At the end of the day, we are what we want to be. Do not allow others to hold you back.”
